Mark Slown's Personal Note:  This position is a fantastic opportunity for a candidate with the necessary skill and talent.  It is a great job, doing important work in a collaborative environment.  It is at a great location, along the shore of pristine Lake Huron.  It is a friendly community with wonderful citizens.  The schools are excellent and getting better.  Excellent medical and emergency care is available.  Recreational opportunities abound.  I look forward to working together with the new Clerk/Treasurer to help Rogers City become the best possible small city in Northern Michigan.
